Weight Loss Contouring
Complete Your Weight Loss Journey with Body Contouring
Following months or years of intense and dedicated exercise and dietary changes, or following a medical procedure that has resulted in massive weight loss, the results may not always be what you expected. Even by exercising and following strict dietary restrictions, many patients find it extremely difficult to eliminate the sagging and drooping of loose skin.
Please view Dr. Eliopoulos’ body contouring before and after results. These are actual patients.
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Hard work and dedication to exercise can produce dramatic results, but it can also produce large amounts of excess skin along the hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, and other problem areas. To help patients achieve their desired results, Dr. Dina Eliopoulos offers body contouring after weight loss at her Chelmsford, MA practice, to deliver a tighter, toned, more athletic and youthful appearance.
What Causes Loose and Sagging Skin?

Patients who have experienced dramatic weight loss, whether naturally or through bariatric surgery, are sometimes left with excess skin on the abdomen, thighs and arms. There are several body contouring procedures that can eliminate excess skin, including tummy tuck, breast lift, thigh lift, arm lift, a lower body lift or a total body lift. Dr. Eliopoulos finds it rewarding to help patients transform their body after weight loss. One of her patients says tummy tuck and breast surgery made a "huge difference" in her confidence.EnlargeView All
Diet, exercise, and major medical procedures such as bariatric surgery are all great options for losing unwanted fat. With the proper regimen and dedication, patients can achieve massive weight loss and dramatically reduce their body fat.
However, during substantial weight gain, the skin also stretches and begins to lose some of its elasticity. Once the weight is lost, the skin remains stretched, causing it to sag and droop. Resistance training can help build muscle, helping to slightly improve patients' appearances, but optimal results may be impossible to achieve without surgical treatment.
Finally achieving a trimmer and more contoured appearance can deliver the boost of confidence and positive self-image that was your ultimate desire when you began your weight loss journey.

Results and Recovery
If a patient requires less comprehensive abdominal reshaping, a partial tummy tuck may be the answer. If the excess skin and fat are primarily located below the navel, a shorter incision may be required to remove the necessary tissue, and the belly button will stay in its original location. Because patients undergoing a partial abdominoplasty require only a moderate amount of correction, the abdominal muscles may not need tightening.
In addition to improved confidence and a more attractive appearance, these procedures can also minimize the chafing and infection that can result from excess skin. You may also find it easier to be physically active, further aiding you in sticking to a healthy lifestyle.
Since each treatment plan will be customized depending on the size of the affected areas, how much weight you lost, and which procedures will benefit you the most, Dr. Eliopoulos will discuss the recovery phase during a consultation.
